Ingredients :

1 cup zucchini grated and drained well
1 egg
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated fine
1 clove garlic grated fine
2 tablespoons fresh chives chopped
1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
1 teaspoon fresh basil chopped
1 teaspoon fresh oregano chopped
pinch of salt and pepper
tomato sauce for dipping



Instructions :

Preheat oven to 400˚F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil or non-stick spray. Set aside.
Use a box grater to grate the zucchini into a clean towel. Roll up the towel and twist to wring out the moisture. Grate the garlic using the small holes on the box grater.
In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well.
Shape a tablespoon of the mixture into your hands, pat into small balls, and place on the baking sheet.
Bake for 15-18 minutes in the preheated oven until golden. Serve warm with marinara sauce. Recipe makes about 16 bites.



Recipe Notes:

  • To make this recipe gluten-free, use gluten-free breadcrumbs or almond flour instead of traditional breadcrumbs.
  • Feel free to customize the seasoning according to your taste preferences. You can add a pinch of red pepper flakes for some heat or incorporate other herbs like thyme or rosemary for extra flavor.
  • For a healthier option, you can bake the zucchini bites in the oven instead of frying them. Simply place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 400°F (200°C) for 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway through, until they are golden and crispy.
